Drive Against Dalals: Illegal Structures Near Bhubaneswar RTO-1 Demolished

Bhubaneswar: In a joint drive Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday demolished all makeshift cabins, huts, structures etc. alongside the boundary wall of Regional Transport Office (RTO)-1 erected on government land here.

The move was taken keeping in line with the steps advised by Transport Commissioner Sanjeeb Panda to all Regional Transport Officers through a circular issued on Friday to free RTO offices across the State from the influence of middlemen/agents.

Panda had directed RTOs for dismantling of all gomutis / temporary huts etc. erected inside the office premises or on the side of boundary wall on government land with the help of local authority and create a people friendly ambience in these offices.

Reports  said as many as 30 illegal structures including a place of worship  alongside the boundary wall of the RTO-1 office erected on government land were demolished.

Notably, these huts, cabins etc. functioned as site offices of the middlemen and agents who used to operate in the RTO office.
